In a new interview with Good Morning America on Monday, John Travolta recalled the tragic death of his 16-year-old son Jett back in 2009.
If you don’t remember, the Life And Death Of John Gotti actor and wife Kelly Preston‘s eldest child, who was autistic and suffered from seizures, passed away after having a seizure and hitting his head on a bathtub while on vacation as a family in the Bahamas.
While promoting the upcoming flick about the infamous mob boss, John revealed how the birth of son Benjamin Hunter a year after Jett’s passing helped bring them, along with now 16-year-old daughter Ella Bleu, back together:
“We certainly have bonded together. Certainly having little Ben has been a beautiful kind of glue for us to rebond after a tremendous loss.”
Travolta has previously spoken out on Jett’s death, confessing “[that was] the worst thing that’s ever happened in my life.”
It sounds like the famous family can always count on each other for support. Catch the clip from the 62-year-old’s interview (below):
